Its Ball bearing, i am studying the pressure variation on lubricant between Balls and bearing wall. So what should you suggest i would do, decrease the velocity or increase the pressure.

What do you want to study? What results can you expect if you set assumed boundary conditions? Fluent is a solver and you should expect divergence if you set wrong boundary conditions! You cannot ask us what boundary conditions to set, it depends on your application and you must know your boundary conditions to simulate your domain. __________________ Google is your friend and the same for the search button!

 March 18, 2015, 13:04 #23 New Member   Shailesh Join Date: Mar 2015 Posts: 16 Rep Power: 9 Thanks for your help... But which condition i must have to remember while solving the question.... like is there any upper or lower limit of pressure or velocity in FLUENT. One more question : is it ok if my mesh quality is just above 0 like 0.003. Or i have to work on my mesh too. I know low mesh quality will bring poor solution but does it also bring divergence in solution??? And does Fluent only accept unstructured mesh??? and what will happen if i provide it a structured mesh???

However, I repeat, that if you set wrong (non physical) boundary conditions, fluent will probably diverge. In your case, with your boundary conditions, the pressure at inlet should be near 500000 atm and velocity at the restriction near 10000 m/s. These values are both not physical. If you just want to do a test, set a velocity at the restriction between 25-30 m/s, so to have an inlet velocity of about 0,0025 m/s. You should enable cavitation model also, otherwise you will have negative absolute pressure at the restriction, which, again, is not physical. I don't know how fluent reports quality of mesh: usually I evaluate different parameters directly in preprocessing. Low quality meshes can cause not accurate results, difficult in converging and divergence. As far as I know hexa meshes are better than tetra, however in some cases (complex geometries) tetra mesh is the only choice. __________________ Google is your friend and the same for the search button!

How do i enable cavitation model. Sorry if i am silly to ask this but i am new to ANSYS.

And Thanks for all the help so far.

If i am giving inlet velocity values,reversed flow occur and divergence happend... How can i solve this problem and how can i fix this issues...and how can i achive convergence.....please help me
